Target has launched a new tutorial video with some great, easy-to-follow tips for a gorgeous smoky eye. The brand tapped makeup artist and founder of the Pixi makeup line, Petra Strand, to show her best advice to create a smoky eye using Pixi Lid & Line in Smoky Olive, $18. This three-in-one pencil has a liner, shadow, and smudger, so you can pull off the day-to-night look with one simple product. In the video, Strand shows how to elongate the line of your eye to create a cat eye look, and then add more pigment using the powder pressed shadow inside the pencil. Next, she uses the smudger to blend the powder up over the lid. To finish the look, she uses Pixi Large Lash Mascara in Bold Black, $18. Another great tip: In order to get mascara truly at the root and lengthen your lashes, make sure you look down as you're applying. Watch the video to see Strand apply the smoky look! read more

Here's how to DIY: read more

Signing on a celebrity spokesperson can be a risky game of image roulette for beauty brands. If you're smart, you land winners like Ellen Degeneres and Sofia Vergara for CoverGirl. Not so smart?

We're giving a thumbs-up to today's announcement that sweet "Pretty Little Liars" star Lucy Hale was named the new beauty ambassador for mark cosmetics, Avon's beauty and fashion boutique brand. mark and Hale announced her new role in true 2013 fashion -- on Instagram (@mark_girl and @lucyhale89) -- earlier today. read more
It's no secret -- I'm pale, and proud of it (see: fear of self-tanners and obsession with sunscreen). But this is the time of year when all of my friends have a radiant, Charlize Theron-esque glow, and the truth is, I feel ghostly. I covet their sun-kissed skin and wish for a little color of my own. So I'm breaking out the bronzer. read more
